How to: Choose the Right Blush for your Clients' Skin Tone

How to: Choose the Right Blush for your Clients' Skin Tone

A rosy flush never goes out of fashion and instantly adds a natural glow to your clients’ face. By simply sweeping a hint of colour across the apples of the cheeks you can keep your clients looking fresh-faced all day.

Peach, tangerine, berry or raisin – it can be challenging to know which fruity colour best suits your clients’ complexion. However, you’d be pleased to know that there is a simple trick in selecting the correct colour. For a natural look, choose a blush with the same undertone as your client’s skin. If you want a bold looking blush, pick one with the opposite undertone to your client’s skin.

Before you get blushing away, read our guide to prescribing the best blush shade.

Tip: If the skin tone is warm (a yellow undertone), choose a warm shade for a natural look and a cool shade for a pop of colour and vice versa for a cool skin tone (a pink undertone).

Your Blush Guide

Fair Skin

Tip: Try blush shades that are soft pink, light coral and peach, such as Clearly Pink, Awake, Cotton CandyWhisper or Copperwind PurePressed Blush.

Medium Skin

Tip: Try blush shades that are rich pinks, warm mauves or deep peach such as Barely Rose, Mocha, Flawless or Sheer Honey PurePressed Blush.

Olive/Dark Skin

Tip: Try blush shades that are deep fuchsia, berry, warm brown, raisin and tangerine such as Mystique PurePressed Blush. Cream blushes are a great way to get high-impact colour that still looks natural. Try InTouch Cream Blush: Connection, Chemistry or Charisma.
